helpful or a pointless exercise? cory booker, the hero mayor of newark, the guy who runs into a burning building to save lives, invites superstorm sandy victims into his home and rushes to aid a pedestrian hit by a car. heroism so out of the norm, it's been lampooned by booker himself and new jersey governor chris christie. >> gov, sit tight. i got this. >> booker. >> governor, stand back! i got this. i got this. >> booker! >> now booker says he will honor a challenge he made to one of his million plus twitter followers to live on food stamps for a week to see how the other half lives. although it's fair to ask, as mayor of newark, doesn't he already know? the s.n.a.p. challenge, as booker calls it, means eating on just $4.32 a day. he he says he's doing to, quote, raise awareness and understanding of food insecurity, reduce the stigma of s.n.a.p. participation, and amplify compassion for individuals and communities in need of assistance. he was told by a constituent that nutrition is not a responsibility of the government. he seems to be itching to prove her wrong. he could run against

22nd. newark mayor cory booker is starting his food stamp challenge tomorrow and over the weekend he went out and bought $29.78 worth of food for the week. that is a little bit less than what the average new jersey recipient got from the federal supplemental nutritionist assistance program or snap in 2011. other public official have taken the challenge. i remember reporting it on it years ago. several members of congress have done it. also the mayors of las vegas and phoenix and former utah governor jon huntsman. booker came to the challenge on twitter with a follower who was is asking why it is kids need nutrition in school if they have access to food stamps. that twitter follower is supposed to be taking the challenge alongside booker as well. >> alarming news out of syria. the ap reporting syria has been moving around chemical components in the last week. secretary of state clinton is underscoring president obama's warning that if the syrian government uses chemical weapons, the u.s. will take acti
